Visual Studio Code 1.75 brings configuration profiles
February 5, 203
|the Profiles feature is now generally available in VS Code. A Profile can include extensions, settings, keyboard shortcuts, UI state, tasks, and user snippets. You can customize VS Code for different development scenarios like data science, documentation writing, or for multiple programming languages like Python or Java. If you have different VS Code setups based on workflow such as "Work" or "Demo", you can also save those as different profiles. You can open multiple workspaces (folders) with different profiles applied simultaneously.
|The following image demonstrates a folder opened with a Work profile that is customized for a work setup.
|You can also export and import profiles to share them with your colleagues, friends, or students to help them get started with VS Code.
|The following video demonstrates how to export a profile using a GitHub gist in order to share it with someone. Users that receive the profile link can preview the shared profile in VS Code for the Web and import it to their local VS Code instance.
